The Original: The legendary BMW E39 540i

The BMW E39 540i belongs to the fourth generation (E39) of the 5 Series, produced from 1995 to 2003. BMW developed this generation to provide a perfect balance of performance, luxury, and daily functionality. Equipped with a 4.4-liter V8 engine producing 286 horsepower and a maximum torque of 440 Nm (324 lb-ft), the 540i was a vehicle that delivered impressive performance on highways and twisty country roads. Technologically advanced for its time, the E39 featured an aluminum suspension that significantly improved handling and behavior. Chief engineer Wolfgang Reitzle and designer Joji Nagashima played key roles in the development and design of this generation.
